Our Mission

Providing Support

Gender Minorities in Mathematics (GeMM) at the UMN is dedicated to addressing the issues traditionally faced by people of minority genders in mathematics. Being a minority of any kind (e.g., race, ethnicity, gender, age, and health) can be challenging, and that fact, when added to the rigors, competitiveness, and impersonality of graduate education, is often a heavy burden to carry.

Creating Opportunities

We encourage members of all genders to study and to have active careers in the mathematical sciences, and to promote equal opportunity and the equitable treatment of all in the mathematical sciences at the University of Minnesota. 

Ensuring Quality of Experience

As an organization, GeMM is committed to improving the quality of all people's mathematical experience by breaking down these barriers and creating a more inclusive community.
